The marriage of Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith is a hot topic at the moment. Now that the celebrity couple is receiving more attention, old rumors are coming to light, specific ones about a supposed affair Smith had with a co-star almost ten years ago. More information that puts those old rumors in perspective after so many years has been provided. We have always been dubious, despite the tabloids’ breathless reporting on the alleged affair.
This week, Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith opened up about the breakdown of their marriage. Their relationship came under scrutiny during the Red Table Talk discussion on Facebook Watch, which also caused them to argue with rapper 50 Cent again on Instagram. Many have conjectured about whether the Fresh Prince star had any celebrity hookups in the days since the confession. Most particularly, whether a romance developed with Australian actress Margot Robbie.

Jada Pinkett Smith’s unwonted advice for husband Will Smith
In 2020, the 29-year-old singer August Alsina revealed his previous relationship with Jada Pinkett Smith, being adamant that they had dated while she was still married to Will Smith. She admitted the relationship and described it as an “entanglement” that happened while she and her husband were apart. Though they were able to resolve their differences and get back together eventually. Pinkett ended her relationship with Alsina after deciding to try again with her marriage.
Nevertheless, Smith revealed what his wife had warned him after finding out that Margot Robbie would be starring opposite him in the 2015 film Focus in an interview with E! News. The Girl’s Trip actress was less focused on Smith and Robbie possibly having an affair and more concerned about the latter not being shown to the Emancipation actor. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Sheree Zampino and 2022 Oscar winner Will Smith were married from 1992 to 1995 and also has a son Trey Smith.
Smith recalled while laughing, “When Margot got hired for the gig … [Jada Pinkett] saw that Margot was young and hot and in shape. Boy, don’t embarrass me. Get in shape now. She was like, ‘Do not let that girl smash you onscreen.”

Truth About Will Smith and Margot Robbie love Rumors
In 2013, when Photobooth images of Will Smith and Margot Robbie jokingly flashing the camera went viral, dating rumors started to circulate about the two actors. They worked together in the films Focus and Suicide Squad. The photos caused a media frenzy, and for a few years, tabloids cited the incident as unequivocal evidence that Will had either an affair or an open marriage with Jada Pinkett Smith.
Being compelled to address the rumors, Robbie posted on Twitter, “Been working nonstop, just catching my breath. There’s absolutely no truth to the ridiculous rumor in Star mag…” She felt disappointed that jokes on set could be taken so far out of context. However, the tweets are no longer accessible because Robbie deleted her Twitter account later on.
